  • What happens when you do double click it? Does it do nothing? prompt you? open in notepad? – Miles Hayler Oct 1 '12 at 9:02
  • @miles hayler: if the file is on desktop, path of desktop is opening in command prompt. Then i can able to run it by typing file name. It is became 2 step process. – madhu Oct 1 '12 at 9:08
  • Pasting the content of bat, will make it easier to help. – Ankit Oct 1 '12 at 9:15
  • @lamb: i dont have any problem while running content. Its a problem with default file association of windows. – madhu Oct 1 '12 at 9:17
  • Do you have UAC enabled or disabled? If it's opening the command prompt then it know what it's supposed to do with it in terms of file association. – Miles Hayler Oct 1 '12 at 9:26
